Last Friday, Girder records released remasters of Petra’s albums Beyond Belief (originally released in 1990), Unseen Power (1991), and Wake Up Call (1993).
I am less familiar with Unseen Power at the moment, but I am very familiar with Beyond Belief and Wake Up Call, which are both excellent albums.
In fact, I think Beyond Belief is one of my personal favorite Petra albums. It has a consistent bold rock sound throughout, with a couple of equally amazing ballads (“Love”, which I reviewed this past February, and “Prayer”).
I plan to review more of the songs from the album to showcase their awesomeness individually.
If I absolutely had to pick favorite songs, I would probably say that my top two – with equal status – are “Seen and Not Heard” and “Beyond Belief.” Although I also really like “Creed.” And “Armed and Dangerous”… Goodness, trying to pick a favorite song on this album is kind of like being told to pick a favorite child – it just should not be done!
Anyway, here is the track list:
Armed and Dangerous
I am on the Rock
Seen and Not Heard
What’s in a Name
I definitely recommend that you check it out!
Selena Gomez (Birthday: July 22, 1992)
Rebecca St. James (Birthday: July 26, 1977)
Mick Jagger, lead singer with the Rolling Stones (Birthday: July 26, 1943)
Please pray for these bands and individuals as God leads you.
(I also have a basic guideline here if you wish to refer to it.)
In addition to praying for the weekly Prayer Focus, please pray for God to guide me and give me wisdom as I make decisions for the radio station and for the website. I really appreciate your prayer support!
